    Well-Worth Reading!

    What a wonderful unique historical novel!!! I loved it! Worth reading!! The author, V.S. Alexander, through intensive research was able to marry WWII historical events and fiction with ease. His idea to write this book came from reading about the life of Margo Woelk who was one of Adolf Hitler’s food tasters. This is NOT a biography of Margo’s life. This is the fictional story of Magda, a German girl who becomes Hitler’s food taster. She was one of fifteen women tasters that were employed to taste Hitler's food to prevent him from being poisoned by Allies, spies or any of his own men. If you enjoy WWII historical novels, I highly recommend you pick up a copy of “The Taster” by V.S. Alexander.

    Gripping historical fiction.

    Well written book blending history and fiction. It's uncommon in our world to read a book of the Nazi era from the perspective of everyday German people swept up in the hype and propaganda and to understand why they would turn a blind eye to the atrocities around them. Having lived in Germany in the 1970s, I witnessed the younger German generation face their family horror, and how they were frustrated with the denial inherent in their parents. The author takes a young woman and slowly positions her deep within Hitler's circle. She is given the task of tasting Hitler's food, so that she would give her life for the Third Reich in case the food had been poisoned in an assassination attempt. The story is historically accurate in many ways, and also describes an awakening resistance within some of Hitler's inner circle and the consequences of that resistance. Very well written.

    The Taster

    This is an enaging and thought provoking story that makes the reader question humanity and the cruelty and caring that exist side by side.
